Festive Peppermint Bark is a holiday favorite everyone loves! Easy to make and great as a food gift for neighbors or friends!
Peppermint is one of my favorite winter flavors. It’s not just for Christmas! The fresh minty flavored pair with chocolate, cookies, candy, cakes, hot chocolate, and more is just so darn crave-able! It’s not only the minty flavor I crave, but the red and white color combination of happiness! How can you not be happy when you see red and white candies calling your name? I’m sure the Grinch can, but not us normal people!

Hungry for More?
- 12 ounce package bright white candy melts
- 12 ounce package red candy melts
- 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 2 candy canes, crushed
- 1 cup peppermint kisses, chopped
- Place white candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute. Stir candy melts, and heat again for 30 seconds. Repeat heating for 30 seconds and stirring until candy is melted and smooth. Repeat process with red candy melts.
- To the red candy melts, add peppermint extract and stir until completely combined.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- Drizzle big lines of white candy melts all over the baking sheet. Repeat with the red candy melts so the candies over lap a bit and fill in most of the gaps on the baking sheet. Use a butter knife to swirl the candy together until there are no gaps in the candy.
- Sprinkle the top of the bark with candy canes and chopped kisses.
- Refrigerate bark until set, about 1 hour.
- Remove from the fridge, peel off the paper or mat, and break into medium-sized pieces using your hands. Store in an ai-tight container in the fridge until ready to serve.
